Throttling Back for the Weekend...

Saturday, July 03, 2010

Good Morning!

Up early trying to stay somewhat organized and not let the work that's piling up get out of control....it's very hard for me to not work a little bit even for one day...I love my work, but I'm still in search of that balance!

Cindy & I had a really nice time hanging out at the pool yesterday, just relaxing...not a work-out, first time this year that I've gone to the pool just to swim and relax...felt great.

No big plans today, we might hit the farmer's market and just bum around for awhile...maybe get some much needed napping in.

Sometimes when I get caught up in my feelings, the negative stuff...I realize that I really struggle with people-pleasing and feeling guilty about not doing what I perceive other people think I should be doing. First clue, I'm in my head and I really have no idea what anyone else is really thinking about me and then I need to remind myself that I'm an adult now, this is my life, it's ok for me to take care of myself the best way I know how...even if that way isn't perfect....I'm learning and I'm making big healthy changes. Feeling guilty about stuff that isn't even real is crazy making, so I'm gonna move that up on the list of things for me to work on.

I hope everyone has a really fun and safe holiday weekend, Ryan

    Just because you think it in your head does not mean it's real or what someone else is thinking!!

    For every negative thought replace it with 3 positive thoughts! It will help you be more aware of what you are saying to yourself. You are on the right track! Keep up the great work!

    Goof for you, Ryan! No one knows what's best for you than you yourself. Stay true to that and you'll win!

    Have a great and safe weekend!

    Everyone wants to be accepted, but I think you've figured out that fine line between pleasing others so much that you lose yourself and doing the best you can when you can for others. Have a great holiday weekend!

    It took me a long time to figure out that I need to worry about ME and not get caught up in trying to figure out what other people think of me. It is an empowering feeling when that hits. Life is much easier when all you need to work on is yourself. Good luck making the change and have a great time relaxing this weekend.
